    All the non-Coulson characters have some rough edges to work out, but there's lots of potential there. Sticking with it.

    re: Agents of S.H.I.E.LD.

    Pretty good start for the series.

    "Fall’s buzziest new drama had a super-powered premiere Tuesday night: ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. — a show so big it takes two company names to officially describe it — delivered 11.9 million viewers and a 4.6 adults 18-49 rating. That makes S.H.I.E.L.D. TV’s highest-rated drama debut in nearly four years (since ABC’s Vpremiere in November, 2009)."

    The one scientist guy (Fitz?) was up there with generic action team member so I assumed he had worked out an antidote at the last minute. I believe they had shown them packing up some sort of dart rifle on the jet, so I'd guess that's what he was shot with. No idea why he decided shooting the antidote into his forehead was the best delivery method though. I assume they just did that to fake everyone out for a second, but it just made it confusing.

    I wasn't overly impressed but I'm going to keep watching. I think there is plenty of potential for it to be great sooner than later.

    Werent they talking about some sort of paralyzing weapon earlier in the episode, when you first meet Fitz/Simmons?

    Haven't watched it yet, but with Joss Whedon involved I don't see how it could be bad.

    re: Agents of S.H.I.E.LD.

    I'll keep watching. I think they had to do a lot of stuff in the pilot to try and get the non-Marvel fanboy ABC base on board. With that out of the way, I have high hopes for the next few episodes.

    I liked it, made me miss Heroes. And by Heroes, I mean the first 2 seasons not the last 2 that were ruined by the writers strike.

    I thought it was a nice start. I'm glad they're giving this thing a shot.

    There was the nice inclusion of Ron Glass (Shepard) from Firefly in it.

    So am I making this up or is there an underlying mystery about how Coulson was brought back? I swear they were hinting at it. Like maybe even he doesnt know.

    Yea, I got the impression in the early bits that he may be a clone or robot and not realize it.
